Indians Bullpen Without Clear Roles, Just Getting Outs

The new-age statisticians have to love how Indians manager Terry Francona is slowly moving toward using his bullpen. And while bullpen-by-committees have normally not been successful in Major League Baseball over the last 25 years, the Indians have made their bullpen work well for the last five weeks. Since John Axford was removed of the closer’s role on May 9, the Indians have...

Indians cap 10-game trip

The Cleveland Indians know well that there is no place like home. At Progressive Field this season the Indians have been hard to beat. On the road this season the Indians have just been hard to watch. The Tribe departed from Cleveland over a week ago to embark on a monstrous 10-game trip through the heart of the American League. They were the worst road team in baseball when they...

Indians 4, Angels 3: The Bauer & Carrasco show

Trevor Bauer and Carlos Carrasco deserve equal billing at the top. What they did last night on a hazy summer evening at Progressive Field can be described in one word: gritty. Two of the four guys who battled for the fifth starter job in Goodyear in March combined to shutdown the dangerous Los Angeles Angels in June to move the Tribe to within two and a half games of first place...

Michael Brantley named American League Player of the Week

That was one of my favorite tweets to send out a year ago, and now it seems like a really obvious thing to say when it didn’t feel so obvious back then. He’s been named the American League POW for June 9-15. Michael led all Major League hitters in batting average, runs scored and on-base percentage (.625), and was tops...

Tribe Weekend Recap: Bullpen saviors, struggling offense, Swish’s return, and the bunt

Last year, the Indians were “Team Streak.” This year, the PD’s Paul Hoynes has dubbed them “Team Clank” thanks to their tendency to commit errors at the worst times. I think they are a combination of both. We have seen the full arsenal of good and bad over the past two weeks. An on fire offensive juggernaut for a few days follows up with a group that can’t hit their way...
